Property Tax Cut May Mean Less Money for Education
The fate of public school funding will lie in the hands of florida voters. Lawmakers have decided to put the property taxes that goes to schools up for a vote. The commission that reviews Florida's tax structure and budget meets every 20 years to recommend changes. Educators fear however this change may come at the expense of their students education which is already in a deficit.
The proposal includes an increase in the sales tax as the new source of school funding, but school administrators worry what will happen if the tax doesn't generate enough money. Supporters of the proposal say if that happens, lawmakers will make up the difference. If they don't then it is schools that will be left holding an empty financial bag.
